The manga and the live action contain the story of the prostitute who is his first love. This part was left out of the anime movie because it ran too long Both are worth watching The scenes with Rin should not be left out I have watched both twice but will watch the extended version again Gives you a good idea how the Japanese lived with the American bombing at the end of the war

Well I've already seen it and it was a decent film. Dunno if I'll rewatch it just for this though but maybe in the distant future

An extended version? Wait does that mean that there were scenes that they didn't put from the manga? Anyway I loved the art and story so I'm definitely watching. I wish they extend the ending more than what happens before.
Yes, if IIRC there are some scenes from the PV that didn't showed up in the movie and the director apologize for that. Also,
